§ 3. Mr. TOM SMITH
asked the Secretary of State for India when the present protection for the Indian steel industry expires; and what steps the government of India propose to take with a view to holding a statutory inquiry into the industry?
§ Mr. BUTLER
The protective duties at present in force expire on the 31st March, 1934. The Government of India hope that the inquiry prescribed by the Steel Industry Protection Act will be begun before the end of this year.
